What we do today will be remembered tomorrow.

Whether we like it or not, there is always a roll-on effect of our actions (or inactions) and we will have to live with the consequences.

Others won’t always notice the great work that you’ve done today, but you will remember.

Alternatively, you can hide your mediocrity from the scrutiny of others, but you will remember.

What do you want to look back on?

The actions that took you closer to your goals?

The acts of compassion that assisted someone in need?

The encouraging words that you used and heard from others?

The moments of joy spent with family and friends?

The skills that you developed and learned?

The art that you created?

A day spent doing amazing work that made the world a better place?

Or all of the above that you could have done (and should have done) but didn’t, leaving you with memories, not of fulfilling and satisfying moments, but of regrets and wasted time.

Today, you have a unique opportunity.

It’s an opportunity that you control.

It’s an opportunity to make a difference.

You have the chance to create memories for tomorrow.

What will they be?
